Engineering Design Shows achieve record attendance for fifth year

The Engineering Design Show series of events, achieved record visitor numbers for the fifth year in a row. Running from 19th to 20th October at the Ericsson Exhibition Halls, Coventry, the shows brought together more than 4200 design engineering professionals to the showcase of British innovation.

This exciting two-day event played host to 23 thought-provoking conference sessions and panel discussions with engineering design experts, including, JCB, BAE Systems, Raspberry Pi, Visteon, Cambridge Consultants and Oxford Space Systems. Many of the sessions were standing room only. In addition, the exhibition housed three workshop theatres open to visitors wanting to learn new skills or take away practical design tips and expert advice.

Bespoke cooling solutions specialist, technotrans, had a “stunningly good” show, according to its business development manager Stuart Packer: “This is a great show, bringing together product designers and manufacturers interested in finding new or better ways of developing and producing their products.

“We have already signed up for next year,” Packer added.

“The 2016 Engineering Design Shows have once again proved hugely successful; the visitor numbers increased on last year and the events housed the greatest number of exhibitors to date, over 80% of which have confirmed their stand space again for next year. We now have a waiting list for exhibition space at the 2017 event,” said Ed Tranter, managing director of organiser, MA Exhibitions.“We have been overwhelmed by the industry support for EDS and look forward to creating an even bigger and better experience for our visitors in 2017.”

The Engineering Design Shows will run at the Ericsson Exhibition Halls, Ricoh Arena, Coventry from 18th to 19th October 2017.
